For anyone who has had pink eye! Is this normal?

I had pink eye it has almost cleared up completely. Now my eyes are very sensitive to sun light, to the point I can't drive. Sunglasses don't help a whole lot. Is this normal?

  • My daughter had that last year and had the same problem. I called her doctor about it and he said it's common once it starts clearing up. He described it as being similar to how your body is sort of tired and sore after you are just getting over a bad bug. The sensitivity will go away in a day or two, or at least it did with her.

  • That has happened to me before too- you may have a scratch on your eye.

  • I have been putting visine in them. It has been several days since the sensitivity began. Oddly enough, it didn't start until my eye was almost cleared up.
